Design of low-complexity detection schemes that can approach near-optimum bit error rate (BER) performance in multiuser or other multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems has always been highly challenging. In this paper we propose and investigate a so-called receiver multiuser diversity aided multi-stage minimum mean-square error multiuser detection (RMD/MS-MMSE MUD) scheme operated in the principles of successive interference cancellation (SIC). The BER performance of the RMD/MS-MMSE MUD is investigated in association with both the direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) communicating over both Gaussian and Rayleigh fading channels, and the space-division multiple-access (SDMA) communicating over Rayleigh fading channels. Furthermore, we assume that the DS-CDMA and SDMA systems are either full-load or overload. Our studies show that the RMD/MS-MMSE MUD in full-load cases is capable of converging to the optimum BER performance of the maximum likelihood (ML) multiuser detector (MUD). For the overload systems, the RMD/MS-MMSE MUD can make a DS-CDMA or SDMA system support K=2N users, but still achieve much better BER performance than a corresponding DS-CDMA or SDMA system using the conventional MMSE-MUD to support K=N users, where $N$ denotes the spreading factor of DS-CDMA or the number of receive antennas of SDMA.
